Beautiful place. EXPENSIVE
Food was good but the service was ok. Drinks are a little pricey but it was my anniversary so I splurged.
Food was great but service not so good. The waiter was rushing the whole meal. I ordered a whiskey and when I didn't immediately respond I wanted it neat, he condescendingly said "do you want ice or by itself". We ordered extra food to go for our son and he never gave it to us while we thought it was already packed in the bag. At one point my wife asked him to repeat himself because he read the deserts so fast and he said "sorry I'm really busy tonight".
Restaurant was over-crowded (Valentine's Day Weekend. Can't fault them for that. However, the table we were placed at was apparently in the middle of a major high-way for the Serving Staff. My chair was constantly being budged, bumped and the table was jostled frequently (busy night!). I asked if it was possible to either rotate the table or perhaps shift it slightly to make some space. I was met with what I would describe as a quiet resentment. I was told it would be impossible to rotate the table (it would supposedly deny the servers access to other tables). The Server said he would make sure they did not use this particular pathway anymore. Unfortunately, this did not change the route of the staff. The entire evening was spent uncomfortably tensing up every time a member of the Staff whizzed by, knowing there was a 50/50 chance the table would be struck.
I want to make it clear that I don't blame the Serving Staff for doing what they can on a very busy weekend. My issue rests with the price-point of the restaurant and the perceived lack of concern for the customer. If I were in a busy or otherwise undesirable area at a local Diner (imagine being perhaps a little too close to the kitchen doors) they would gladly attempt to accommodate my party as best as they could. I would only expect the same level of courtesy from an establishment that commands the prices and quality of Insignia.
The Meal was excellent and the night was otherwise enjoyable.
A wonderful experience, the food was excellent and the service as well.
We were able to take out time and truly enjoy dinning out.
We will highly recommend Insignia and purchase gift certificates for our friends to enjoy.
Nice place....head waiter was a bit annoying. He was next to us and was constantly.on top of the other waiters (not in a nice way). The waiters were all professional...i was very pleased with all the waiters who served us. Its pricey, but you do get a lot of food. The water lilly cocktail i had was so strong! Will definitely go back for drinks!
Service was outstanding! Waiters were all so friendly and wonderful! Food was delicious.
We ordered the steak medium rare and it came to the table blue. We sent it back and then it was cooked nicely. There were big pieces of fat on each steak we ordered. Other steakhouses we frequent (Peter Lugers and Benjamin’s) replace those inedible pieces so the steak is perfect.
I signed up for the Good Life and my $600 meal was not credited. Now I have to call to get the points. This is annoying.
Food although pricy ,well worth it.meal was plentiful,wait staff was very attentive and polite.The valet parking was also great had my vehicle brought to me within minutes.
Always a good time w/great wine and great food
Great oysters and skirt steak was amazing
Excellent service and the food was just as good. I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for and insignia delivers.
Great place and the food is amazing but prices are a lil to steep for sushi & steaks! Overall food is legit, i just think for Long Island the prices are way overpriced then manhattan, which is crazy!
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was fantastic. Such an amazing place.
Yes, I would recommend Insignia! The restaurant is beautiful, very romantic. When we sat down the first song we heard was our wedding song! all of the staff was excellent!, really, really good. I had the mac and cheese and Lobster, excellent. my husband had the mushroom appetizer, and the chicken dish for the main course. I had the smaller filet mignon, which for the price, was a little disappointing. the wine was excellent. The COOKIE! we shared for dessert was awesome. I would recommend this restaurant
interior looks like a huge catering hall with hundreds of tables filling up the rooms, all quite close to each other. Expected something more intimate. I had petite filet mignon ($49) and roasted mushrooms as a side. The filet was actually tough and stringy on the outside -inside was medium as ordered but tasteless. Mushrooms arrived slightly warm and were sent back. Husband had 2 large prawns ($69) which didn't arrive with much lobster meal at all-as said by waiter before ordering. Not worth the price. Insignia salad was respectable. Sorry, Insignia, but Ruth's Chris can't be beat-my filet there is consistently tender, tasty and worth the price (go for the Classic Menu!) Perhaps other selections here are good, but I will never know...Prices are just plain Ridiculous, too.
The food was amazing and the service was beyond impressive !
My Love and I enjoyed a wonderful night Friday.,Everything from start to finish was just perfect.. we wanted for nothing. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you, Rob for great hospitality. You made our night!
Amazing time. Enjoyed the atmosphere and best oysters ever consumed.
Very professional and friendly staff.
Fast and great service. Dishes lacked flavor and while food was cooked well we anticipated steak would melt in our mouths. Unfortunately medium rare was a bit dry. We will try it again, maybe a non valentines setting would be better.
great place, service was over the top, food was top of the line, first time visitor will be back for this dinning experience
Overbooked ! Didn’t get seated till 11pm left didn’t even eat
Terrible service waited an hour to be seated after reservation time. Waited another 45 minutes for appetizers and another 45 minutes for entree. Terrible time and won’t be going back. Ruined a Valentine’s dinner for many. Heard about 12 tables complaint and seen people waiting for hours. Should charge McDonald prices not city prices for that type of service.
Pros: Delicious food, great specials, professional service
Cons: long wait (though it was Valentine's Day - was seated 45 minutes after reserved time), tables can be too close to the bar, pricey (though you do get what you pay for)
Overall, great place and will return
We had two amazing waiters, Steve and “Uncle Glen”. They were super patient and attentive. They made our Valentine’s Day very special for my mother, sister and I. The food was so great, especially the truffle Mac and cheese and the special boneless rib eye. We will definitely come back soon!
Went on Valentine’s Day. 8:30 reservation, wasn’t seated till 9:15, didn’t get served our meal till 11. Once our meal was served the food was good, but the wait was horrendous. Manager apologized and comped us our meal so I’m able to leave a decent review, though I would have much preferred a timely meal to a free one.
Too expensive and noisy
We were there for Valentine's and the place was super crowded. We had a reservation at 8 pm but had to wait in front of the door (there was not even a chair to seat and we were feeling the frozen air every time a new guest was entering) for 30 minutes before being seated. The wait did not stop there because we ended up eating at around 10 pm.
The food was good, the steak was decent. The wine was good too but french fries were stinky and cold.
The bill was high, very high in comparison to what we got. We paid $240 for a steak split in two, french fries and spinach and 2 glasses of wine. No appetizer, no dessert, no coffee or anything else. Come on... Gallagher's in NYC is a MUCH BETTER steak house than this at similar prices! I think I will never go back. There are better alternatives.
Insignia never disappoints. Went for my Valentines Birthday. Love the energetic feel of the restaurant and bar. Bar service was stellar. Had best booth in the restaurant for our party. Waitstaff was understandably busy and only one of the two waiters assigned to our table waited on us. We had a long wait between apps and main course - not a problem though since we were all having drinks and lively conversation. Half our dinner party had "warm" food probably waiting for other dishes to be prepared. Still not a big deal. To top it off, a flare on the celebration platter is a definite birthday treat! We will be back!
Love insignia every time we go! Food is always fresh and on point. Service is impeccable. We will always come back. Tried sushi for the first time there and obviously it was amazing.
Service was great, very good energy. I was just very unhappy w/ the food. I’ve gonna to restaurants that were way less expensive and their food taste 10x better.
My wife and I went to a wedding their 2 yrs ago. Since then we celebrate all of our special dinners at insignia. The service is outstanding and the food is amazing. Truly a great place to go for everything from a romantic dinner to just a night out.
Good food, good service. Glen, our server was amazing.
Insignia is our favorite restaurant. Always great food and service is top notch. I recommend it highly.
Steak was undercooked and very fatty, not what was expected for the price.
My husband loved his steak and his soup. The waitress service is exceptional. I had the Chilean sea bass that was cooked to perfection.
Everything from start to finish was excellent!! Highly recommended!
servers were very good and the food was delicious. Really nice night out with my husband.
Amazing service, amazing servers! better than what i expected. definitely would recommend this place to a friend would most likely be coming back.
everything was great ..staff was great too
